A glass half full

Hello lovely people,

Confession time; I forgot about the clocks going back (!) forward this morning!
I hope everyone else remembered!

Today I am going to be mostly in my happy little crafting space to finish up some DT work and maybe make a little something just for fun :-)

Meanwhile, I have a very simple little card to show you... it doesn't get much more CAS than this!
The trickiest bit with this design was getting the sentiment where I wanted it as it wasn't a clear stamp.
I was planning on sharing with you how I did it but I made this a few months ago and I actually can't remember - lol!

CAS design featuring Opal the Optimist by Stamping Bella

Oh and the other problem with CAS cards is that your colouring is really in the spotlight so no hiding those mistakes!  Can you spot anything odd?  If not, perhaps I shouldn't tell...

  1. A fabulous card Kat, I love the CAS design and beautiful colouring for the super Stamping Bella girl and such a brilliant sentiment!!

    Thanks so much for joining us with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

  2. Love your card Kat and I know exactly what you mean about placing the sentiment stamp. The other problem is when you get a small mark from the edge of your stamp….so frustrating!

    By the way, I would never have spotted the bottle if you hadn't mentioned it!

    Have a happy crafting day.
